Google has unintentionally confirmed the next version of it’s mobile operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It will be coming first to the Galaxy Nexus “soon”.
Whilst many people and rumour sites though the name Jelly Bean would be given to Android 5.0 rather than just an incremental update.
The information was discovered by US shoppers on the company’s Google Nexus site, Google has since removed the reference to Jelly Bean, but a user from the XDA developer forum posted a snapshot of what the listing said.
The listing for the Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ model stated:
“The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1 Jell…”
Users have also found a product image of the Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean. In the picture, you can see a new transparent Google Search Bar that incidentally also appeared in screen shots promoting the new Goole I/O app released earlier in the week.
Google is expected to be announcing the news at the company’s developers conference in San Francisco next week.
